near Al Ahyl, Muscat (Sultanate of Oman)

The famous W4 route that starts from near the Sama Resort and leads all the way to the south summit of Jebel Shams.
organised bt Arabian-FiTrekkers meetup group we started our hike at 7:40am and returned to the campsite by 6:30pm. The weather at this elevation stays bearable throughout the summer season.
We carried 6 litres water each and made some drop points on the way up to reduce the weight.
Rock here is very sharp, so sturdy boots and gloves are recommended.
